This is a multi-part book review on Ralph Martin’s new book “Will Many Be Saved?: What Vatican II Actually Teaches and Its Implications for the New Evangelization” by guest submitter Dominick Anthony Zarcone.

About the Author Ralph Martin and His Commitment to Renewal and Evangelization

Ever since Martin’s adult experience of personal renewal in 1967, a grace of the Holy Spirit which focused him on both the person of Christ and the salvific redemption accomplished by this Son of God made man, our book’s author has been fully engaged in the Catholic Church’s primary ministry of love. Passionate about the universal call to holiness, evangelization and inviting others to encounter the Lord Jesus Christ, Ralph Martin knows, believes, and instructs others in the Church’s Sacred Tradition and Magisterial teaching regarding the message of salvation in Christ and the necessity to proclaim this good news to all people. The Catholic Church is convinced this message and its announcement make an eternal difference in people’s lives and Martin willing shares this truth.

A Doctor of Sacred Theology, Martin is the Director of Graduate Theology Programs in the New Evangelization at Sacred Heart Seminary in Detroit, President of Renewal Ministries, and a Consultor to the Pontifical Council for the New Evangelization.

Dr. Martin, a Roman Catholic all of his life, has witnessed God’s life transforming grace and fruitfulness in peoples’ lives throughout the United States, Canada, Africa, Eastern Europe and other parts of the world. However, for the 45 years he has been responding as a Catholic to God’s call to evangelize, evidence mounts demonstrating that within the Catholic Church there is little urgency to proclaim Christ the Savior.

Recognized by both the hierarchy and lay scholars to be an evangelist-scholar with theological insight and prophetic wisdom, Dr. Ralph Martin’s life’s work culminates in writing the book which can wake the Church out of its lethargy.

Endorsements by Catholic Church leaders include comments like the following: “WILL MANY BE SAVED?” revisits the Second Vatican Council’s missionary purpose and inspiration, clarifies authentic doctrine of salvation, exposes a pastoral strategy that fosters a belief everyone is saved anyway and shakes up the extreme optimism about the salvation of nonbelievers.

Wow, it is about time that false interpretations, exaggerated theological speculations and misplaced pastoral strategies are exposed for what they are and for they have harmed. Dr. Martin reveals and evaluates the thinking which undermines the Church’s central mission.

This book will impact the New Evangelization.

Thanks be to God.
